This generic warning shows up for any program that uses atomic radii but
has not been provided a .tpr file, which contains unambiguous masses and
atom types. The warning just alerts the user to the possibility that
something strange might happen when guessing what an atom is based
solely on its name. For example, "CA" is often the alpha-carbon in
proteins, but could it be a calcium ion in some cases? Similarly, is
"HG" a hydrogen at the gamma-position or is it mercury?
